‘Pop up’ blood drives set in Sequim

Bloodworks Northwest, the nonprofit that supplies blood to more than 90 percent of the area hospitals, is seeking donations at what representatives say is a critical time.

There will be a “pop-up” center on June 29, July 1, July 8 and July 10 at the Sequim Elks Lodge, 143 Pt. Williams Road. All blood types are needed.

Staff and donors are required to wear masks, and in order to facilitate social distancing, appointments are required.

Make appointments by calling 800-398-7888 or online at BloodworksNW.org.

Hospitals are preparing to tackle a significant backlog of surgeries, transplants and cancer treatments suspended in March after the magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic threat became apparent, Bloodworks Northwest representatives said.

Patient needs and requests for blood from local area hospitals are rising quickly.
